Özet

OBJECTIVE: The treatment of idiopathic sudden sensorineural hearing loss (ISSHL) depends mainly on the steroids, and there is an increasing number of studies about not only systemic usage but also local administration of steroids to the target organ. The aim of this study is to determine the effects of intratympanic steroid (ITS) administration as adjuvant to systemic steroid (SS) treatment in the management of ISSHL.
